The motive behind this research venture is to discuss issues of gender inequality and its effect on women from social, cultural, biological, psychological and emotional perspective. The stereo typical mind set of individuals and society are highlighted. As a forethought, measures to get rid of gender exploitation and genuine grievances are also addressed.

Methodology and Approaches: The research design adopted for this study is qualitative philosophical and exploratory. The short story is meticulously examined through the lens of feminism. Case study was under taken in order to determine facts in the existing scenario. The findings of this study raised serious issues of gender inequality and its effects on the various arena that woman encounter in her every day to day life.

Outcome: The paper provides a new approach on woman centric issues that has to be viewed and weighed under ‘new’ lens. The series of questions raised during the analysis help individuals to self- interrogate and contribute towards self-realization.

Some of the questions governing my enquiry are: How and why do we say that woman has got freedom when we see apparently her self-acknowledged losses?

A strong teleology in determining the need for economic security to stay as ‘dominant’ and not as ‘dormant’ individual is enforced towards the culmination.
